Most are just minor updates to existing lens

In aps-c, pentax has almost all the lenses they need. Canon has about 15-20 more specialized lenses than pentax, in FF equivalent focal lengths (please don't start an equivalency debate). There aren't that many new lenses Canon could release, besides updates.

That was the whole premise of my original post they are not coming out with new lens they are updating existing lens so don't really count as them releasing new lens

Do you think Ricoh will release a press release say "x, y, and z aps-c lenses will work perfectly on FF"? I can't imagine them leaving their audience clueless that a lot of their lenses will actually work on FF...

Honestly, the lenses coming out of the FF release are what excites me more than the FF
APS-c is enough for my uses. In case someone missed that, I said for MY USES please don't start a debate.
The manual for the flash, either built in or addon, has a list of lenses and their characteristics, some warning about vignetting. So yes, I would expect they will have a list somewhere.

For the pro using Pentax APS-c there are a few HUGE gaps.


A 16mm 1.4, 35mm 1.4, and 50mm 1.4 (or 16mm, 23mm, 35mm for APS-c) are sorely missing. Notice Canon and Nikon both make these lenses for FF. You could switch between a 5DIII and D810 and have the exact same set of fast primes for either by either company.
Notice too that Fuji has been making the X system for exactly 5 years and all those lenses are available for Fuji as well. There is a reason for that.


However, having said all that most Pentax users will never know the difference anyway. But I think it's important to know why Pentax isn't more popular... (than it should be.)

That's why I said "almost"

Kenspo my friend you're approaching 1k posts! You have to arrange it so that your 1000th post will be with some FF samples!

Yes please do, I would like to see the dynamic range or something.

Only if it is a female model though, otherwise I don't give a crap about the.. dynamic range.

Most???!!! I love fanboys...

(in red the minor updates, in green the new propositions: range, max. aperture, technology and associated gains (blue spectrum refractive optics to reduce chromatic aberrations, phase Fresnel element or fluorite elements to reduce size and weight))
